I only met her once. We are related by marriage. Yet, I felt a kinship to this southern lady. Since her marriage to my great grandmother’s youngest brother Clyde Haley in 1937, Dorothy was an integral part of the Haley family. During my time with her, she shared stories about herself and my Haley ancestors no one else could possibly tell. She shared herself. She shared my heritage. For that I am truly grateful. Our family was all the better for having her in it. She will be missed.
